You will have the opportunity to explore the past, present, and emerging future of these religions. You will examine what people believe, why they believe it, and how their beliefs form private and public lives. You will also have the opportunity to study Christianity with particular emphasis on the Catholic tradition in the spirit of Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.
